Mr. Thomas Glasgow, Remittance Manager at Barclays Bank, Loves to Write Emails in Title Case


Posted by Mr Spamalicious | Posted in Nigerian and 419 Scam Spam - Hidden Bank Accounts, Dead Aristocrats, Lotteries, and International Espionage | Posted on 04-12-2010

This is another one that builds upon the Nigerian 419 scam. This email assumes that you already got involved in one of these scams and this is the “remedy”. Alternately it hopes that you are greedy and are more than willing to pretend you are the person they are referring to to get the money. My favorite part is the issuing of your $14.6 million dollars in the form of an ATM card that quite amazingly has a daily limit of $15,000. Since ATM dispense in twenties, and you can only do one withdrawal per day, that means it will take you 973 days to withdrawal all the money from the account and each time you do you will walk away with a stack of 75,000 twenty dollar bills. Besides this being completely impossible as most banks have daily limits well below that, how long before word gets around that there is this guy who withdrawals $15,000 every day from this one ATM and therefore he’s a great target for thieves? I’d give it one month tops before you are kidnapped, beaten, raped, and kept in a basement in chains only to be let out once per day to make your withdrawal. And what’s up with writing the whole email in Title Case and the avoidance of periods?
